ATI RN Comprehensive Predictor - page 2

Does anyone know how accurate these predictions are? Supposedly, if you get over a 70% on this test, you have a 99% chance of passing the NCLEX-RN. Any opinions on this?... Read More

    hello everyone,
    The nursing school that I attend is requiring that we pass the ATI predictor exam, and it's a graduation requirement. Everyone in our class is so concern. Can anyone please let me know how to prepare for this exam?

    We also use the ATI, but not sure if there is a comprehensive predictor form that we have to pass. I personally do not care for the ATI the way our school has it set up. After every quarter we take an ATI test on info that we covered 2 quarters previously. All of our ATI tests have been on lab practical days, so needless to say, we were already stressed after the prac that all of our grades have been lower on the ATI. Maybe they are trying to stress us out, but the DON told us that they tested this way to see what info we automatically retained.

    If you are able to, try to study for the ATI with other materials (NCLEX review books) to gain a vast understanding of multiple topics, especially if it is a comprehensive exam like the NCLEX is.

    I scored a 75 or 76% something on my predictor and it said I had a greater than 99% chance of passing. I passed with 75 questions in 45min.
    To prepare for boards I 1st took all the ATI content tests. Some I got in the 80%s on and others in the 60% range. I then took those low content areas to target my studies.
    I swear by ATI. Yes I liked the Davis disk better because of the rationals, but ATI is what showed me what I needed to work on.
    Because of the ATI predictor I did not have as much stress when it came to taking my boards, I figured the predictor knew what it was testing me on and if I scored so high on that, I had to know something!!.
    Best of luck

    I didn't study for the ATI because I wanted a fairly accurate assessment of where I needed to spend the most time preparing for the NCLEX. I got an 80% and it said I had a 98% chance of passing on the first try. We'll see if it is accurate. I am scheduled to take a 3 day intensive review course through my school in a little over a week and I have the Saunders review book and Kaplan review and plan to do 2000 questions before testing (I don't have my test date yet so we'll see). It was a good assessment tool. Hopefully I pass!

    I will be taking it in a few weeks, will let you know what I thought of it. My school is requiring us to score >=75 or we have to retest. 74-75.3% on the ATI RN Comprehensive gives you a 94-95% probability of passing the NCLEX. 82-100% gives you a 99% probability. If you score in the 60s, that gives you a probability of anywhere from 38-88%. These are the 2007 probabilities that I was given.

    Hi there. I have to take the predictor in a couple of weeks (a few days actually). Can anyone give me any study tips for passing the ATI predictor with no less than a 75%. My school requires a 75% for graduation. I'm scared, i'm tensed, i can't sleep. It's bothering me so much. Thanks.

    I took my ATI predictor tonight and scored a 74%, our school requires that you score a 75.3% or you have to do 1500 NCLEX questions and meet with your mentor for remediation. We also have to retake the predictor before graduation. I guess I don't mind as this will just help me prepare for the NCLEX. Good luck to everyone. By the way - I graduate May 2nd!

    If your school gave you practice assessments you should just keep practicing those and look at the results - they will tell you where to focus your studies. But as long as you keep practicing you should do fine.
